A linear kitchen is characterized by the placement of all furniture elements in one row. This is often due to the small area of the territory.
- This layout can be used for spacious rooms when one part is intended for cooking and subsequent meals, and the second plays the role of a living room, where the corresponding furniture is located.
- In this situation, it is necessary to follow the triangle rule – the sink should be located in the center, and the refrigerator and stove should be located around it.
- In this case, a workplace must be present, which can be determined between the sink and the hob.
The design of the kitchen for an elongated room can be expressed in two-lines.
- In this case, it must be borne in mind that the future kitchen will be a walk-through and therefore one of the family members may constantly be on the way of the hostess.
- If nevertheless, a decision is made to stop at this type of layout, it should be considered that the distance between the lines should not be less than 1.2 meters.
- It is more correct to place a sink with a hob in one line, but the refrigerator and other built-in appliances are better placed on the other.
- in this layout, some modern rectangular table will look perfectly
In this case, the working triangle is preserved, which makes it possible to profitably use the working surface, which, moreover, will be quite large.
One of the most common layouts is the L-shaped kitchen, which is also known as a corner kitchen.
- This option can fit almost any room, even a walk-through or a small kitchen.
- If it is large, then it should be borne in mind that the distances between the working areas are not too great, but it is not worth reducing, too much, the working surface.
- This type of layout allows you to determine an advantageous place for the dining area.
The U-shaped kitchen is characterized by the use of three walls, which creates a good field for decisive action.
- This layout has enough storage space for food and dishes, as well as other items of kitchen utensils.
- With a U-shaped layout, the working triangle can be called optimal.
- It is necessary to determine the optimal size. 2.5 meters is the length of the back wall so that the free space is not less than 1.2 meters.
- In a situation where these sizes are significantly smaller, the seemingly advantageous arrangement of all elements will not bring the desired results.
A peninsular kitchen is a layout that provides an additional outlet for a work surface, sink or stove.
- In most cases, this protrusion separates the kitchen from the dining area.
- This can be both a serving table and a bar counter.
An island kitchen is an L-shaped or U-shaped layout with a special addition in the center.
- The main feature of this layout is the ability to use it exclusively for large rooms.
- The optimal size of the island is 1.2×1.2 m.
- In most cases, a sink or a hob is taken out to the center, it can also be a dining table.
- In addition, a good purpose for the island will be to use it as a work surface, under which cabinets for all kinds of kitchen utensils will be favorably placed.
For such a layout, there are a huge number of variations in the location of the working triangle.
